. it's a real good hedge. if you want to, you can buy johnson & johnson and procter & gamble. they're the largest stocks in these etfs and my trust owns both of them because they are earnings momentum and restructuring stories respectively. we will be looking to buy them for the trust if they get hammered. i know it shouldn't be that easy. you have to be suspicious of any trading strategy that comes out so easily. but it sure makes sense if you're calling for the over, so to speak, meaning more jobs as my friend and writing colleague at thestreet.com has suggested to me. and by the way, this man has been dead right on this number. probably the best guy that i know on what the number's going to be like. besides, it's cheap insurance against what could be a treacherous 3.35%, that big leap in the ten-year that will indeed cause stocks to decline. it's going to be a shock to the parts of the stock market that are most sensitive to rates. no, i'm not calling for bonds to go to 3.5% immediately, but bonds do overshoot, and that's where the ten-year could go in a very short period of time a

robert johnson, who is a cnbc contributor, founder of the rlj and former chairman of b.e.t., old friend of mine. robert, you met nelson mandela many times, okay. how many times did you meet him, what are your thoughts tonight as he passes away? >> yeah, i had the great and humbling pleasure of meeting president mandela on a number of occasions, first with the former commerce secretary, late ron brown, and then i also accompanied president clinton on his historic trip to sub-saharan africa and of course when president mandela came to the united states seeking to raise funds to continue to fight apartheid and support his charities. the one thing, larry, that strikes me about president mandela is i have never known a man so comfortable in his convictions that he could invite his jailor to his inauguration, giving him a seat of recognition, and at the same time, recognize that the real true power of south african unity was going to be the acceptance by black and white south africans that this country had to come together peacefully and to put aside all the hatred, the bitterness of aparthei
